Modeling Access Mode Choice for Inter-Suburban Commuter Rail

  title={Modeling Access Mode Choice for Inter-Suburban Commuter Rail},
  author={{\AA}sa Bergman and John Gliebe and James G. Strathman},
This paper presents an analysis of access mode choice by riders of one of the first U.S. suburb-to-suburb commuter railroads, the Westside Express (WES), in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. The study uses on-board survey data collected by the region’s transit agency, Tri-Met, during WES’s first year of operation. The data include observed access mode choices, historical mode usage, and subjective assessment of WES attributes. A hierarchical choice model was estimated, using attributes of… CONTINUE READING
